So I went GIS'ing for the Zombie Osama bin Laden gun-range target. Yes, there's a company that makes one; it had actually been their number-one seller for years before he even died.

As I was looking for one of a suitable size, I found a Joffrey Baratheon target.

I'm not sure whether to laugh or to cry.

They probably sell a George W. Bush costume, and he killed a hundred times more people than Osama.  But they were all brown, and brown people don't really count.  Well, we'll give 'em 3/5ths of a body count.  That's still more.

Oh come on! They're making fun of Osama, not worshipping him! Is it wrong to turn an evil guy into a mascot to be ridiculed and used for fun? If you wanna be offended, then go find some site that praises Bin Laden's work, not something that belittles him into nothing but being a Halloween accessory!

Wal-Mart was selling this!  And also Sears and Amazon.com, and they all stopped, but Blame the great Satan: Wal-Mart!

Insensitive? Not really.

Dumb? Yes, very much.

Profitable? Probably.

I'm not clear why it's insensitive. It's funny.

So why is it "insensitive" ??
Other dead people have costumes. (Abe Lincoln, Elvis, Micheal Jackson, etc.)

I say sell the Osama costume with some Navy Seal outfits.
